MARTY FRIEDMANIconic guitarist MARTY FRIEDMAN has spent the last two years conquering audiences across the globe on a world tour in support of his critically-acclaimed 2014 solo album “Inferno”, which included FRIEDMAN performing a record-breaking jaunt across South America, touring extensively throughout Europe with acts such as Gus G. (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne), Arch Enemy and Kreator, appearing at multiple high-profile gigs in his current home country of Japan (Loud Park) and his first return to the U.S. in over 12 years. 

FRIEDMAN will wrap up his global tour with a return to the U.S. for a special orchestral performance at the lauded Hollywood Bowl on Sunday, August 14 with acoustic flamenco duo Rodrigo y Gabriela, who appeared on “Inferno” on the single “Wicked Pancea“.

FRIEDMAN commented, “I`m SO excited to play the Hollywood Bowl, and even more excited to do it with my friends Rodrigo y Gabriela AND a full orchestra! They did a great collaboration with me on my “Inferno” album and we’ve met several times in Japan talking about how to make this Hollywood Bowl show a once in a lifetime kind of ultra special show. Can not wait.”

In celebration of the upcoming appearances, FRIEDMAN has teamed up with BILLBOARD to premiere the gruesome music video for his manic single “Meathook” featuring Shining (NOR) frontman Jorgen Munkeby on saxophone. FRIEDMAN describes the video as “a very fresh and aggressive collaboration of my guitar and Shining`s Jorgen Munkeby`s violent sax playing”.  Watch it now streaming above.
